Tesla tycoon Elon Musk has officially broken the internet, appearing on PewDiePie’s YouTube channel to judge memes and back the blogger in his desperate battle against the Indian record label T Series for the #1 spot.

PewDiePie, real name Felix Kjellberg, and Musk both repeatedly joked about the tycoon’s possible appearance, and fans were ecstatic to finally see them together, reviewing memes for the aptly named Meme Review show. The SpaceX founder sat down with the creator of cartoon Rick & Morty to judge the week’s best creations.

The Musk cameo pushed Pew’s channel back to #1, overtaking the Indian record label T-Series that had previously inched out the popular gamer-turned-pop culture phenomenon. Fans documented the moment of victory in real time.

Some even suggested humanity’s peak had been achieved.

On this exact moment humanity officially reached its peak. We only go downhill from here. pic.twitter.com/bvagZrRnEm
